GEORGE N. BARNARD

Born 1819, Died 1902
One of the first persons to open a daguerreotype studio in the United States, George Barnard set up shop in Oswego, New York. In 1854 he moved his operation to Syracuse, New York, and began using the collodion process, a negative/positive process that allowed for multiple prints, unlike the unique daguerreotype.

Along with Timothy O'Sullivan, John Reekie, and Alexander Gardner, Barnard worked for the Mathew Brady studio and is best known for his photo-documentation of the American Civil War. In 1864 he was made the official photographer for the United States Army, Chief Engineer's Office, Division of the Mississippi. He followed Union General William Tecumseh Sherman's infamous march to the sea and in 1866 published an album of sixty-one photographs, Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign . After the war he continued primarily as a portrait photographer in Ohio, Chicago, Charleston, South Carolina, and Rochester, New York, where he briefly worked with George Eastman, the founder of the Eastman Kodak Company

Eve Arnold was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania of immigrant Russian parents. She began photographing while working at a photo-finishing plant in New York City in 1946, then studied photography (for 6 weeks) with Alexei Brodovitch at New York City's New School for Social Research in 1948.

Mrs. Arnold first became associated with Magnum Photos in 1951, becoming a full member in 1955. She was based in America during the 1950s and came to England in 1962 to put her son to school at Bedales. Except for a six year hiatus, (when she worked in America and China to prepare a book on each of those countries), Mrs. Arnold has been based in Britain.

Following her photography of China, she had her first major solo exhibition of her China work at the Brooklyn Museum in 1980. That same year, she received the National Book Award for her book In China.

She was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Magazine Photographers in 1980. In 1995 she was made a fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and was elected "Master Photographer" - the world's most prestigious photographic honor - awarded by New York's International Center of Photography.

In 1996 she was the recipient of the Kraszna-Krausz Book Award for her book In Retrospect.

In 1997 Mrs. Arnold was awarded an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Science from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Letters from Staffordshire University, as well as the degree Doctor of Humanities from Richmond, the American International University in London.

The same year she was appointed a member of the Advisory Committee of the National Museum of Photography, Film & Television in Bradford. In 2003, she was awarded an honorary O.B.E. (Order of the British Empire) by the British Government.
